Default Gainesville Test and Tune

There is a Gainesville Test and Tune on the calendar for this weekend. Has any one gone to one? Is it worth the $50.00 fee? Plenty of track time?

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
Keith R

I see people out there spending money on the car to improve it … If you spend half that effort just working on your driving skills, making you and the car work together as a team, then you’ll go faster – period. To make the car go a second faster on the track takes a lot more energy and money than making yourself drive it one second faster.

Hi. He is referring to the small road course track that is part of the track in Gainesville. It is used for Autox and road course set ups.

p.s. I would love to run my CRX down the drag strip sometime in the future as well.

SCCA (and maybe other clubs) run autocrosses there. I believe the test & tune events are put on by the track owner and some other guy. It's not run like an autocross. You just run the road course one lap at a time. No course working, no times, just line up and run.
